If the Lions want to beat the Packers, it is sounding like they will have to do so without starting OG Joe Dahl and OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai.

Prior to Friday’s practice, Lions head coach Matt Patricia told the media that Dahl will not be practicing and that Kenny Golladay and Desmond Trufant will be very limited. Patricia did not mention Vaitai by name but after not practicing at all over the past two weeks, it seems like he too is in jeopardy of missing Sunday’s game.

If Dahl is unable to play, look for Oday Aboushi to get the start at LG.
